More “Life Moves Fast, Don’t Miss a Thing” Ads

In case ¬†you missed these, Palm has a few new ads in support of the new “Life Moves Fast, Don’t Miss a Thing” campaign. One noticeable difference is the appearance of a phone in the ads, which was a complaint about the original ad. Next round, it would be great if we could see a glimpse of the phone to distinguish it as a Palm phone. Palm logo on the back will suffice. All in all, job well done. Anyone see these on their favorite show or sporting event? Let us know in the comments. Also hit us up if you know what songs are used in the commercials.

New BlackBerry OS 6.0 Preview Borrows Palm’s Advertising

Palm must have really nailed it with their “Life Moves Fast, Don’t Miss A Thing” ad. RIM today unveiled their next generation OS dubbed BlackBerry OS 6.0. While it’s not a traditional commercial, the promo video borrows heavily from Palm’s creative. This isn’t the first time this has happened, with Microsoft “borrowing” to promote Windows 7. As for us, we still prefer the original.
